September is Suicide Awareness Month.
Suicide remains a leading cause of death in San Diego County. Join us in the patio room of the conference center as we discuss the QPR – Question, Persuade, Refer approach to suicide prevention. Suicide is a preventable problem.
Our ministry exists to provide a welcoming environment for individuals and families facing mental health challenges. We offer God’s hope and love through encouragement, listening, prayer and education. Please join us at our monthly meeting every 3rd Tuesday of the month.

St. Dymphna Mental Health Ministry at SES is one of the 30 parishes in the Diocese of San Diego serving parishioners and their families experiencing mental health challenges. Our parish ministry is not intended to replace professional or clinical services and does not provide professional care.
Our ministry provides spiritual companionship and practical support. Our members are available to meet and confidentially talk with families and individuals needing support.
The purpose of our ministry is to
• Provide spiritual companionship, often through prayer
• Provide practical support for those suffering
• Provide parish education
• Encourage inclusion in all parish activities
Our ministry members are familiar with the many public and private support services available to families in our local community. We also provide mental health education programs here in the parish.
St. Elizabeth Seton Mental Health Ministry is here for all people seeking, listening and prayer companionship. We want to extend an invitation to parishioners who are family members or friends of loved ones addressing mental health issues. We meet every third Tuesday of the month from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Conference Center. All of our ministry members are volunteers. Some have suffered through mental illness themselves of with family members. Some work in the field. Our ministry aims to provide comfort and direct you to professional help. If you or a family member would like to speak with a team member about challenges you are facing, request prayers, suggest topics for future programs, or volunteer in our ministry, please email us at StDymphna@seschurch.org
